Leland Sklar to Join Lyle Lovett for Acoustic Group Tour

Leland Sklar

Lyle Lovett will be hitting the road again this winter with his Acoustic Group, which pares down his Large Band to the strings and piano. That includes Jeff White, Luke Bull, and bassist Leland Sklar, who has been playing with the Grammy-winning vocalist since the ’80s.

The group will kick things off on January 31st in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and work across the South with multiple dates in Texas. After making it down to Florida, they’ll head up the coast to finish up with two dates on March 8th and 9th at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia.

Check out Sklar holding it down for the group in this live session from KUTX Austin, where they perform “Are We Dancing,” “12th of June,” and “Pants Is Overrated.”

You can also get a deeper understanding of the connection between Sklar and Lovett in this video from Sklar’s YouTube channel:
